Full Description
Welcome to Orange Tree House where we specialise in making your wedding day one to truly remember. We fell in love with Orange Tree House, situated in the pretty historical village of Greyabbey on the shores of Strangford Lough, over 8 years ago. Since then we have restored the beautiful 1820's stone barn style church and transformed it into a unique conference and wedding venue. When we opened in October 2014, for the first time in over 110 years, a bride and groom celebrated their wedding here.   We believe in "Your day, your way". Whether you opt for a traditional, elegant wedding or take a more alternative approach, we will endeavor to accommodate your plans. Orange Tree House is a totally private venue but, unlike most other private venues, we also provide all of your catering, bar, furniture, tableware etc. so all you need to do is choose your date, menu and drinks then relax and enjoy your day.   As well as having the beautiful stone barn style banqueting room with its exposed beams at your disposal, you and your guests can enjoy the Orangerie with its open fire. You can sip a cocktail or two in our stunning new guest lounge which overlooks Strangford Lough (a designated area of outstanding natural beauty)and onwards towards Whiterock Bay, with the Dromara Hills and the Mourne Mountains as a backdrop. Here you can also relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets, whatever the weather.   The function room can comfortably accommodate up to 132 guests for ceremonies and dinner with room for extra evening guests up to a total of around 160. We have over 100 bed spaces within a 5 minute radius, many within walking distance and are located half an hour from Belfast.   We would be delighted to show you around and discuss your plans.

We were absolutely blown away by the support, warmth and kindness of Jan and the whole team at Orange Tree House.
Hi Jan and your whole team, Rusty and I wanted to thank you for everything you did for us in the lead up to and during our wedding at Orange Tree House. When we booked the wedding with you a few years ago, we knew about the stunning venue, friendly staff and gorgeous views of Strangford Lough. But after the wedding being ‘touch and go’ due to a new variant of Covid, we were absolutely blown away by the support, warmth and kindness of Jan and the whole team at Orange Tree House. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and they went above and beyond to make our day extremely special. While our wedding at Orange Tree House was a magical day for us, as the bride and groom, several wedding guests of ours shared with us that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. The ceremony was intimate and special; the food was remarkably delicious, beautifully presented and piping hot; the cocktails were beautiful; and the dancing was lively, with a wonderful atmosphere in the room. Almost all our guests stayed until the very end. Everything ran on time and the service would be hard to match at another venue. The care, empathy and thoughtfulness of the team is unmatchable. Thank you so much. Very best wishes and Happy New Year. Sinead & Rusty

We would like to say a huge thank you to you all for everything that you did to make our wedding so amazing and perfect! We had the best day that we could have ever imagined. Thank you Sian, Chelsea and Jan for being so quick to respond to our emails and any questions and queries that we had. You were able to make everything easy and perfect for our day and we are so grateful for everything that you did for us especially helping us through lockdown and to get the wedding that we always dreamed of. Thank you to Michael for getting everything set up for our day and making our vision a reality. The Orange Tree looked incredible. Also thank you for looking after us on the day and making it a completely stress free day. We felt so relaxed and knew everything was in good hands. The day flowed so perfectly and everyone had the best time. Another thank you to chefs on the day. The food was amazing!!!! Everyone has been talking about it. Also thank you for our last minute food requests with the canapes and evening food and for being so accommodating with our guests needs. Also thank you to all the staff on the day for being so lovely and helpful. From when we arrived till when we were leaving, you were all so smiley and always willing to help us with anything that we needed. We really appreciate everything that you have all done for us in making our day so amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to have our wedding!

I honestly could not recommend your stunning venue enough, to anyone shortlisting orange tree as a potential venue.
Paul and I would like to send you all a massive thanks for everything you have done for us to make our wedding day so special and memorable for the rest of our lives! It was honestly the best day and ran so smoothly. Michael you were an absolute star in making sure paul and I had a stress free enjoyable day, nothing was a bother and done an amazing job with all the finishing touches! Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed as from a wedding video taken by one of my guests you can be seen completing bridesmaid duties by making sure my dress was fluffed before walking down the aisle, fab job lol Sian and jan for all your help throughout the year with any questions and advice we needed, Chelsea I didn’t get to deal with you too much but from the brief dealings we had with you, I know you will be of great help to many brides with your calming and organised presence, I wish you all the best in the role. Simon, everyone at the wedding could not stop talking about how amazing the food was and how it was the best food they have ever had during a wedding reception and have never been fed as much! Finally, to the bar staff and floor staff for being so efficient and friendly, even the young girls got involved in our sing along during service for the meal, it was a breath of fresh air to see them all happy and enjoying their jobs! Their service and attitude are a credit to you. I honestly could not recommend your stunning venue enough, to anyone shortlisting orange tree as a potential venue, would be mad not to have their day here.

We certainly will have no hesitation in recommending your fantastic venue.
Thank you so much Orange Tree House! Our daughter Sarah married Josh on Thursday and we cannot thank you enough. The venue was outstanding and changeover from ceremony to wedding breakfast to evening party was seamless. Thanks to all the staff involved in preparing the food, serving and making sure it was perfect. Anything we needed, we just had to ask. We certainly will have no hesitation in recommending your fantastic venue.
